Flaming Lips Stream “Immersive Companion Piece” To Floyd’s Dark Side


Coming next: similar treatment of the classic bootleg Dark Side of the Moo…

 By Blurt Staff

 It’s the sonic gift that keeps giving! Pink Floyd’s classic ’73 album Dark Side of the Moon, that is. When the Flaming Lips covered it in its entirety with a host of guests (among them, Rollins and Peaches) in 2009, nobody suspected that the Lips had even more extensive plans. Ergo, this press release:

 Designed as an immersive companion piece to the original 1973 album, DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, listeners are encouraged to listen to the new LIPS album while listening to DARK SIDE at the same time. FLAMING SIDE OF THE MOON was also carefully crafted to sync up perfectly with the 1939 film, THE WIZARD OF OZ. For ideal listening conditions, fans are encouraged to seek out the original Alan Parsons’ engineered quadraphonic LP mix of DARK SIDE, but it will work with the album on any format. Available now through all participating digital outlets. A limited edition 100 vinyl copies will be distributed to friends and family of THE FLAMING LIPS.
